pretty much believed everything they taught me as far as religion and jesus christ but i was into reading and i liked to read and started getting into history and i discovered a lot of real history didn't reconcile with the bible. so the question is, i discovered a series of books that mentions -- suggests perhaps that there really was no jesus christ, in the historical record, actually starts almost two centuries after this character appeared, and it could possibly be something that was -- i mean, that invention, but how do you address the fact that, for 200 years or so, before there was writing about this, nothing appears no letters from anybody no graffiti, no correspondence between ain't spent people and why does ever when we put this book together i left out all religious figures. i don't want it to be a battle over religion. so much good and bad can come out of religion. but i think it's amazing how much we can agree on, and i felt like i didn't want to put out there something that people could consecutive agree on, so there's no politics, religion, my dodd is better than your god.
with him recently hearing his own thoughts on everything from religion to weight loss. that conversation is coming up on this christmas day, and you're watching "cbs this morning." one day george got an important letter. he's built a rocket ship to travel into space." google, how far is earth to the moon? the moon is 238,900 miles... "the great moment had come." 3, 2, 1... you're watching "cbs this >>> dale earn hart jr. is the son of a nascar legend and pretty good driver himself. we asked him to give advice to his 16-year-old sale. -- 16-year-old self. >> and we had a lot to say. we'll reveal it ahead on "cbs this morning." five headlines... investigators in campbell are trying to figure out what caused a >>> hi everyone, it's 8:26. i'm frank mallicoat. some cbs 5 headlines hon this christmas day. investigators in am bell are trying to figure out what caused a initial building to give up -- commercial building to up if flames. it started before 5:00 on dell avenue a business and a car in the back of the structure were damaged. >>> and salvation army volunteers
this. i never heard a word spoken against his religion. and i would have been ausoffend by that. it never came up as a negative. i never saw it anywhere. >> i agree with that. you give credit to where credit's due. they didn't take a shot on him in religion. that wouldn't have worked in this country anyway. and this is better than an inside baseball story. this is inside the dugout story. i'm not getting paid and i love talking about it. >> me too. what did you find as a journalist, what did you find? because you've been watching romney since he was a moderate republican not that long ago. m. >> 2002. of course he called himself moderate and progressive and so forth. the romney in 2012, he was talked into iz by his son tagg and wife ann. once he decided to run, he was all in. but there was this question how do you run? the signal was let's focus on president obama's handling of the economy and lesser emphasis on biography. >> that worked well in that first debate. i was dying in that first debate he was so good. it was arrogant but it worked. why didn't he stay on that line he w
men and women of faith, but today, religion is very politicized. can you talk about that? >> faith, this belief, this sense that somehow and some way we will overcome, this belief that, in spite of all the odds setbacks, delays come interruptions, that we will make it, that we will arrive at a place where we recognize and respect and dignity and the work of every human being. it is the keeping with the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence to believe that we will and we shall overcome, that we will not get lost in a sea of despair, that we will not become bitter or hostile, but with our faith, and we know the victory is there. it may take longer, it may be difficult, but you come to that point where there is no turning back without that sense of faith, we would not be where we are today. people ask me all the time what you did not give up, why you did not turn backed, why you did not fight back. my faith kept me going, kept me grounded, kept me anchored. >> president obama will be giving his renomination address at the democratic convention in the bank of america stadium. i
of religion, says it only applies to certain entities. it doesn't. and the idea that congress here, through the president's plan, has burdened the religious exercise of hobby lobby to the point where they're being compelled to violate their conscience, i can't imagine the founders would have thought that to be a very good idea. again, i go back to the basic point. all they had to do was keep a status quo here. >> kelly: that's a very good point here 'cause they're facing a million dollars in fines every day and they provide a lot of employment. what happens to a company like this because they're standing on their faith principles? >> eric: it's a tough call. it's like chick-fil-a, the same thing. the difference with that is that people came and said we're going to support chick-fil-a. they got that support. this is a big one because if hobby lobby wins this, they probably already lost it, but if they somehow prevail in the courts, there are a lot of faith-based companies, founders of companies that would like to do the same. the question is, will there be anyone else besides churches and re
marrow school, from kindergarten right up through the sixth grade. every morning, no matter what religion you were, every morning you put your head down on the desk and you said the lord's prayer, which was regarded as nondenominational. now, today you can't do that. my question to you is without faith in the classroom and they're impressionable kids, they don't know the difference between right and wrong in many cases. whether that would have stopped this crazy guy in newtown, i don't know, but it seems to me faith in schools, particularly for these young kids should be restored in some way. >> well, i'm a catholic and i was raised in a pretty strong faith environment with my family. and i certainly had this at my school. and i don't disagree with you. i think it's all sorts of things, larry. it's the lack of parental guidance, as well. i think it's the breakdown of the social fabric of the family in america and many other countries. but the particular problem for america, which no other country that has the video -- britain has mental health issues, britain has the same videos, the same
, no matter your ethnic group, religion or sexual orientation. that's what we fought for in 2012. and that's what we're determined to keep the fight on in 2013. i'll be there and i hope you're there with us. as we go forward. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. please join us monday, new year's eve, at 6:00 p.m. for the second annual revvie awards. on behalf of everyone here at politics nation, have a safe and h happy new year. "hardball" starts right now. >> deal or no deal. let's play ""hardball." >> good evening. i'm richard wolf in for chris matthews. at the 11th hour, just when people were starting to lose hope, the president met with congressional leaders this afternoon and declared he was modestly optimistic about a deal on taxes. speaking in the white house briefing room, president obama condemned congress for failing to resolve its differences in any normal way. >> christin, let's take a listen to what the president said about the up or down vote about what he expects to emerge from the senate. >> i just had a good and constructive discussion here at the white house with senate
of religion. they are inalienable and it is unfathomable to us that there are parts of the world where they don't believe that. it's amazing, but true. how far do we go in pushing what we believe to be universal rights when we know we're going to get some kind of negative reaction? i mean, can we be tough or russia because they're less important to us than say, china or saudi arabia? >> i think the russians would like us to be tougher. what is quite interesting is that vladimir putin might have stepped out too far on this issue. there are 600,000 orphans in russia right now which is more than they had during the time of world war ii. now, oftentimes the russians and russian public opinion can be quite anti-american except in this case almost 40% of russians actually support the act which when you consider it it's not a majority, but coming from a country that's often anti-american and public opinion that's really significant. >> when putin was signing the thing he said, so what if the living standards in other countries are better than ours? so what? i don't care. should we all move th
religion, reason, and what america needs now. >> the good life isn't good enough. what you need is the better life. >> the election, the economy, same-sex marriage and more, to the issues that really matter. >> you know why we have to change the constitution? it was a flawed document. it was made by men. >> what does god mean to you? this is "piers morgan tonight." >> good evening, and happy holidays and welcome to a special "piers morgan tonight." joining me, one of the most influential spiritual leaders in the world, rick warren. he's america's pastor. we're going to talk about politics, sins, and much, much more. pastor warren is the author of the best selling book "a purpose driven life." welcome. >> it's good to be here with you. >> what is the purpose of christmas? >> you know, the angels in the story the first christmas said three things. those three statements say the three purposes of christmas. they are celebration, salvation, and reconciliation. first thing the angels said was, i bring you good news of great joy. which shall be for all people. by the way, christmas is
themselves a religious organization. all they are doing is using religion as a false front. this is a criminal organization. they make their money by smuggling and kidnapping and through intimidation. there our family names of gangs. they have no real political motives that are good for any country. let alone a country so suffering is afghanistan. these people should not be allowed back to the government. but i am afraid because of the weak position that we have and the karzai government, everyone is saying that we need a political settlement. most wars, all wars end with completely defeated enemies or a negotiated position. in this case, it's going to be a negotiated position because we cannot defeat it. we just don't have the forces nor the political will to do so. harris: captain nash, thank you for your perspective today. >> my pleasure. jon: new york city is the safest big city in america. fewer workers per population than any other big town. the murder strikes again here is a man is pushed to his death in front of a subway train for the second time this month. the sea
there needs to be more recognition of the unique cultural aspects, religion, culture, language. >> would use the the little bit to the american attitude of the chinese -- would you speak a little bit about the american attitude toward chinese investment in the united states? >> if you're asking me about the american viewpoint, you all represent that. if you ask me about the american government viewpoint, the administration welcomes foreign investment from all countries into the united states, including from china. obviously, there are certain issues of national security that have to be looked at, whether the investment comes from france, and germany, israel or china. there is a committee on foreign investment in the united states. out of the hundreds of billions of dollars a year of direct investment coming into the united states involving thousands of transactions, only about 100 per year are reviewed by the united states government, and only about six or seven of those involved chinese companies. and out of the hundred that the united states reviews, only about 6%-7% are ever modified. so,
of the three, main religions. >> reporter: it's so politically charged. >> so politically charged. >> reporter: discovered by accident in the 19th century, when an archaeologist was walking his dog. these caves and tunnels is known as solomon's quarry. king solomon is the founding father of the free masons. >> reporter: the reminder of solomon, his temple and his construction, seems to seep from these walls. tears of the king. >> the tears of the king. >> reporter: why is he crying? >> this was the end of the first temple period. >> reporter: it was under his rule that jerusalem fell to the babylonians. the temple was destroyed. and the arc of the covenant went missing from history and the pages of the bible. >> the last time anybody really sees it, according to the biblical tradition. >> reporter: many believe these underground tunnels were used to secretly transport the ark out of jerusalem. and when the babylonian troops took inventory of the treasures they plundered, something was missing. >> there are stories that maybe someone spirited the ark out of the city, just ahead of the destructi
limit. the senator who was eye mormon has said in the past he does not drink alcohol as his religion prohibits it. >>> turning to wall street, kayla is at athe new york stock exchange. good morning. >> the stock mark has tracked the progress of the fiscal cliff talks or lack thereof. falling on news of no deal and now at a relative standstill, still the major markets were up and the s&p is up up 13% for the year. later this week we expect more signs of economic improvement especially in the housing market. home price data comes out on wednesday. new homes sales data comes out on tuesday. we wait and send it back over to you. >> queen elizabeth ii is going 3d. the 86-year-old none nanch filmed her annual christmas day message this year in 3d for the first time ever. she pays tribute to the summer olympics games in london. 2012 is a landmark year for the monarch between the summer games, her diamond jubilee and the news a great-grandchildren is on the way. it's 7:18. back over to natalie, willie and maria. >> odysseying her wi odd seeing glasses over. maria is back for the holiday fore
is asking the u.s. military academy to stop including prayer at all official>> joinin religion contributor father jonathan morris. >> happy sunday. >> kelly: an issue, and let me give awe statement what they're actually saying. they're saying and pull that up quickly, west point cadets should be able to train for service in our nation's military without having religion forced upon them. academy officials must respect the religious liberty rights of all cadets who should be free to make their own decisions about prayer without government coercion. this has been a practice at west point since george washington. >> i'm absolutely in favor of cadets not having to go under government coercion to pray. you don't have to pray. in fact, 1972, there was a court ruling saying that cadets were not-- should not be required to attend religious services, that's a very good court decision. a very different thing to say however, that no one is allowed to pray publicly at an event there at west point. i use today lead a bible study at west point. i know how religious so many of those cadets are and for th
should extend discrimination law, or you should protect the free exercise of religion to the greatest extent possible? we would get these cases and resolve them in terms of a particular liberal or conservative political agenda. there are ways of characterizing us that make more sense in terms of what we do. some of my colleagues prefer to adhere strictly to that text of the statute. others of my colleagues look more expensively to what we call the legislative history of the background of the statute, or a purpose, and it makes sense to refer to them in those terms. some of those think it is important what the framers of the constitution were thinking about at the founding when they drafted it. others on the court take a more flexible view and think that the interpretation of the constitution should be informed by evolutionary developments. those sorts of things make sense. it is easier, i think, for court reporters to say that justice is liberal and that justice is conservative, and i do not think it is helpful in looking at what we do. >> let me switch to a question about -- more int
and various cities, there's no room for kids and not even a thought process. let's face it, religion is on the slide in terms of the major politics are in the newspaper. let's talk about those. >> i'm not a regulation man but we are fooling with the cycle of life. the cycle of life means you replace yourself for the next generation. western economies rely on growth. you stop growing, you're like a sha shark, you die, we need to do that for the debts we're piling up. what fuels growth is the next generation of young workerings. young workers are not coming into the workforce. look at southern europe with youth unemployment. take 15% youth unemployment in spain and compound that with the fact they stop having babies. what happens in a generation or two. >> i tell you, bill, you got me thinking, i encourage readers to read this. in some of the biggest developed economies pushed the most growth are below a 2% utility rate. this has to be dealt with at some point. back to you. >> thanks, rick. >>> road trip and big bank is in highways an byways in the road for yield. we'll explain how. an
